Speeding on I-80 got a Colorado man pulled over and his stash of hash oil earned him a little time in the county jail.

Zachary R. Bourbeau, 22, of Colorado Springs was heading west a little too fast on I-80 and was stopped by a Nebraska State Patrol Trooper shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday. The trooper became suspicious from Bourbeau’s nervousness and a search found him in possession of around four grams of hash oil.

In court, Bourbeau told Lincoln County Judge Kent Turnbull he was headed back to Colorado Springs to open a pet business and that he was not smoking anything while traveling.

That did not matter to Turnbull, who arraigned him for possession and set a bond of $10,000.

A friend of Bourbeau was in the courtroom and said he would pay the bond and help Bourbeau hire an attorney.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 12.


Meth charge reduced

Chuck E. Robinson, 52, of Omaha was convicted Friday of attempted possession of methamphetamine. A charge of possession of a synthetic drug was dropped.

Robinson accepted a plea deal from the Lincoln County Attorney’s Office and pled no contest to the lesser charge.

Robinson was found with drugs on March 29 when he was stopped by the Nebraska State Patrol five miles south of North Platte on U.S. Highway 83 for speeding.

According to the Douglas County Corrections records, Robinson was also wanted on a warrant from Douglas County for failure to appear on a misdemeanor citation.


Shoplifter gets probation

Beth Michelle Reichenberg, 30, of North Platte, was convicted of second-offense theft. The charge was lowered from third-offense.

Reichenberg pled no contest and was sentenced to a year probation.

Deputy Lincoln County Attorney Jennifer Wellan said Reichenberg and her companion, Anthony Bennett, 37, of North Platte were in Fantasy Gifts in late June shopping for “a stun gun.”

A sales clerk took a item out of the display case and handed it to them, then was sidetracked by another customer.

Reichenberg and Bennett left the store. The employee realized the stun gun was missing and called police. Reichenberg said in court that when she got into the car with Bennett, he took the stun gun out of his pocket, handed it to her and said, “Here’s a gift.”

Bennett served two days for shoplifting, according to sheriff’s records.

Lincoln County Judge Kent Turnbull ordered Reichenberg to undergo a psychological evaluation as part of probation.

She has had prior convictions of shoplifting and thefts, however, only one of the priors was recent enough to be considered in court.
